Oprah interviewed with People and shared some exclusive news about herself.

The mogul spoke about why she never had children, saying that she has seen too much and has spoken to a lot of people who are messed up because their parents did not take their job serious. She’s 65 years old and has not had any children.

She revealed that she was a mother at age 14 due to a rape, but lost her child. She has no regrets about not having children. She has no one to attend to as she also stated in the interview. Oprah gives props to all parents to have children and especially to mothers who stay home with their children. She stated, “I don’t have the ability to compartmentalize the way I see other women do. It is why, throughout my years, I have had the highest regard for women who choose to be at home [with] their kids, because I don’t know how you do that all day long. Nobody gives women the credit they deserve.”
